Little rock speeddating
Today I am, because I make the rules and I can change them if I want to. Uh, because I went speed dating this week, and chances are, you're probably curious about what that is/whether it was fun and if you should try it, and I've got your back. (Note: I've taken measures to protect the some of the innocent, stupid, and/or ridiculous people I met last night.
Also, this story involves complete strangers, and therefore, is unlikely to come back to haunt me.
Fast Forward to last night: My girlfriends and I show up to Xino in Santa Monica, dressed up, and ready to make snap judgments about the eligibility of strange men.
We were each assigned a number and given a card with three columns printed on it.
The ladies sit for the duration of the evening, while the lads move from lovely lady to lovely lady every six to seven minutes.
As we don’t use whistles - our hosts gently tap the lads on the shoulder to let them know it is time to move on.
" -Dwayne "Just wanted to let you know I had a blast. I will definitely recommend it to friends and anyone else who is undecided about attending. " -David "If you don't like crowded mixers or bars and online dating isn't working for you, then this will probably work." -Jeff "I am so glad I attended the speed dating event yesterday - great group of people showed up. You get to know and feel the connection, chemistry right away in a stress free environment.
Check out my interview with Anoush where she answers your most burning speed dating questions! Our events tend to be a bit more relaxed, restrained, and sophisticated than your typical speed dating event.
I don't know that we would have realized our connection had we "met" online. " -Megan "I am very happy to report that this experience vastly exceeded my expectations! Trying to find the time to be able to schedule "2nd dates" with all 4 of them is a wonderful problem to have. I have heard friends talk about similar events with other organizations that did not always go so well so I must admit being a bit guarded with my expectations.
The people I met where great and the whole process of picking the people you liked on the website after the fact was fun and removed any pressure or awkwardness. That being said, this event surpassed my expectations." -Mike "I'm either dreaming or this is one of the best days of my life!
We had that instant attraction that you can only know when you meet someone in person.
He and I had such great banter and witty repartee which can't really happen over text or messaging someone. " -Suzee "The way Date Switch operates has been the best speed dating experience I've run into." -Dave "My name is Thomas and I recently attended... I decided to go last minute on a whim and I was successful beyond my wildest dreams having 4 matches with wonderful women. I will definitely refer others to you." -Thomas "This being my first event with Date Switch, or any speed dating event, I must admit I was genuinely surprised at how well it went." Obviously, everyone agreed because we all bought them the very next day.
